Description of key information

In order to assess the biodegradation of Floral Super, a screening test was performed according to OECD TG 301D (Closed Bottle test) and under GLP conditions. In this study river water was exposed to 2 mg/L of the substance for 28 days. Floral Super did not cause a reduction in the endogenous respiration. Furthermore, the validity criteria of the test were met.
Floral Super was biodegraded by 84% at day 28 in the standard Closed Bottle screening test and should therefore be classified as readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
